April 24, 2020 – In response to Executive Order 2020-59 (“Stay Home, Stay Safe”) issued by Governor Gretchen Whitmer on Friday April 24 permitting the operation of golf courses, the City of Midland has announced that Currie Municipal Golf Course will reopen on Saturday, April 25.
In an effort to comply with this executive order and social distancing guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), the course will be open for walking players only. Carts will not be available for use. Players are strongly encouraged to reserve tee times and pre-pay for their rounds online at www.curriegolf.com or by phone at 989-837-9600 to limit in-person interaction with staff.
Additional safety measures also in place will include:
- Spaced-out tee time intervals to control traffic flow and limit player interaction

- Increased cleanings for all shared spaces and equipment
- Limited takeout food and beverage and retail sales in compliance with the current executive order
